Men's hair removal

If you’re after a quick solution to full body hair removal for men, look no further.

Laser hair removal is the industry standard technology for permanently removing hair. It releases a wavelength of light into the hair follicle, converts to heat, then eventually destroys the follicle bulb. This makes laser the ideal permanent hair removal solution for men who want to remove hair on their face and body—without the hassle of ingrown hair and shaving rashes.

Our Laser Hair Removal Device is the first (and only) laser device on the market designed for home use that permanently disables the hair follicle. Extensive studies have shown you can reduce hair growth by up to 80 percent in just four weeks. And there’s no risk of upsetting your schedule: it only takes 15 minutes.


How does IPL work for men?

Similar to laser, IPL (intense pulsed light) works by sending light energy into the skin which converts into heat. This energy then gets absorbed by the melanin within the hair follicle, stunting hair growth straight from the root.

Hair grows in different cycles, so keep up with regular sessions for 12 weeks to see even results. IPL (and laser) are best done during the hair growth (anagen) phase, rather than the transitional (catagen) or resting (telogen) phase.


What are the benefits of IPL and laser hair removal for men?

There are so many benefits to using at home laser and IPL devices—they’re faster, permanent and much more convenient than male waxing or shaving. Most IPL and laser devices can complete a full body hair removal treatment in just 15 minutes, which shaves time off your usual hair removal routine. And after 12 weeks, you can go anywhere from two to eight weeks without needing a top-up.

Ditch the hair removal creams and male waxing strips, laser and IPL devices can effectively help with full body hair removal and razor burn. You’ll no longer have to deal with red bumps and ingrown hairs from using your razor either. And think of the time you could save? Compared to in-clinic laser hair removal appointments, home use laser and IPL devices are a practical and time-efficient alternative.


Which IPL device should I buy?

Whether you're looking to tame back, chest, leg and arm hair, or simply wanting to cut down on your shaving time in the morning—here are the at home IPL devices we recommend. Browse the selection of best selling IPL devices targeting facial hair removal for men and full body hair removal for men.

New to IPL hair removal? No worries. Ulike Sapphire Air 3 and Braun Silk-expert Pro 5 are the most comfortable and straightforward to use. Perfect for getting that clean-shaven look without razor irritation, bumps or ingrown hairs on the face thanks to advanced cooling technology, multiple comfort modes and smaller treatment windows. You can use these on your face, chest, back, toes, fingers, legs, bathing suit area and arms.

If you’re someone who’s constantly on-the-go (or just likes the freedom of cordless tech), then the JOVS Mini Cordless Hair Removal Device is an IPL device you can take anywhere. It’s high intensity, fast and comes with a bacteria-killing blue light attachment for hygienic hair removal anytime, anywhere.

As for the most powerful IPL devices, SmoothSkin Pure Fit and E-One are the ones you’ll want. Pure Fit is proven to be the strongest handheld IPL device on the market—you’ll see results as soon as four weeks. While the E-One is the only at home IPL device to give the same results as in-clinic IPL hair removal sessions; even working on blonde hair and tanned skin (most IPL devices don’t work on blonde, grey or red hair due to not enough pigment in the hair follicle).
